Once again the Foot Levelers Blue Ridge Marathon is looking for bloggers of all kinds to spread the word about “America’s Toughest Road Marathon” (we know it’s the best, but it’s better coming from you). Bloggers don’t have to participate in the full marathon; Anthem Star 10k and Blue Ridge Half Marathon participants are welcome too. While we love to hear from competitive athletes, we also love bloggers with inspiring stories, a unique perspective or those that run for a cause.
We are also hoping to reach a wider audience this year, so if you live ~4-7 hours from Roanoke, we may be able to help with transportation costs to make your journey possible. Just include those details in your application below.
All selected bloggers will receive a FREE entry for the race of their choice, a free concert ticket to the Down by Downtown Music Festival during race weekend, marathon swag (can be used for blog giveaways), and support from our race director and event manager. If you have questions, please feel free to contact us. Otherwise, just fill out the application below.
Deadline for entries is August 27th, and selected bloggers will be announced by September 10th. If selected, your responsibilities will be to blog once a month until race day, write a post-race review of your experience, host at least one giveaway and interact with us on social media. Have fun with it and we can’t wait to have you join the Blue Ridge Blogging Team!
